England Under-20s prop Kieran Brookes will join Leicester next season from Newcastle Falcons.

The 20-year-old, who can play across the front row, is seen as a valuable addition to the Tigers pack, particularly in World Cup year.

With Martin Castrogiovanni, Dan Cole and Marcos Ayerza likely to be involved in the tournament, Brookes is likely to play a key role at Welford Road.

Having come through the ranks at Fylde, Brookes has gone on to become a key member of the Newcastle pack.

He has also represented Ireland at Under-18s and Under-19s levels.
